"Rapid dB Drop Technique" is just another new name for the technique, which is known since more than 50 years ago. Actually you may read the book for the Level I operators http://www.ndt.net/article/v05n09/berke/berke.pdf - chapter 6 related to the defects evaluation. In case of having the recorded A-Scans some dB drop for the defect sizing is implementable easily in the postprocessing software for every discontinuity recognized by the software - every state of the art PA instrument is equipped with this function, may be just the name of the function is different from one brand to another. However - with reference to the above book - this technique has a limitation - it may not be applied to the compact defects, which have the dimensions smaller than the beam width - in that case it is necessary to refer to the echo amplitude
